Contributor Information

  • Name Varda Rotter
  • Institute Weizmann Institute of Science

Tool Details

  • Tool name: hTERT PF179T CAF cell line
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Tool sub-type: Continuous
  • Parental cell line: PF179T
  • Organism: Human
  • Tissue: Fibroblast
  • Cancer type: Prostate
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Growth properties: Fibroblast
  • Model: Tumour line
  • Conditional: Yes
  • Description: Fibroblasts located adjacent to the tumour (cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs)) that constitute a large proportion of the cancer-associated stroma facilitate the transformation process.This cell line can be used to help to understand the biological behaviour of CAFs in cells isolated from a human prostate tumour.
  • Research area: Cancer
  • Production details: Primary human prostate fibroblasts (PFs) (designated PF179; 179, patient number) were isolated from a prostatectomy specimen, marginal and distal to the prostate tumor. (PMID: 18842679).
